Oh GAWD I feel your nerves rudee!!! I've seen msg post this before too, our hair decides to behave itself just a few days before our cut. I've had it happen to me too, so weird.

Remember you're not going in there for a BC just a Trim. Communicate as much as possible, get there early, show him on your own hair how much you expect to lose in length so there is no room for error. You're in great hands with Carlos though

I know exactly how you feel. My hair ALWAYS looks better right before I'm getting it cut. It's always the way. But, I would go if I were you. One time I cancelled my haircut because it looked good, and then a few days later I looked terrible and it felt too long and out of shape. I think that if you cancel, you may regret it.

I've read that you shouldn't let your hair grow too much before each cut because then the hairdresser will have a harder time keeping the shape.

Good luck, have fun, relax, and enjoy.
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density
Ok guys, I am getting nervous. Like literal, queasy nervous, had a bad haircut nightmare last night, nervous.

As kharma would have it, my hair has FINALLY been looking good..... do I postpone the cut?!? But its been a good 6-7 months since I even had a trim and I think thats unhealthy. If the cut is great and perks up my hair I will be THRILLED. But if its a bomb, I will feel like " I KNEW I shoulda left well enough alone...."

I know this is normal and y'all lunatics have been here. Help me decide; or at least talk me off the ledge! My appt is THIS WEEKEND!

RIGHT?
Don't let 'em talk you into anything you don't want.
Keeping the bangs, length etc.
If you are clear and keep a good eye on him it will turn out GREAT!

For myself I steer clear of haircuts due to past disappointments. Have actually cried in the chair! I trim 2xs a year length an layers.

You know what you want and you know how to get it

I believe you will be very happy with this cut!!!

If you cancel, as soon as you hang up the phone your hair is going to start looking like crap. Seriously. My hair always looks fantastic right before a cut. Whenever I cancel or decide not to get even a micro-trim when I go in for color, my hair turns butt ugly IMMEDIATELY!! It's just the way it is. The hair knows and is a spiteful B.

Your feelings are totally normal plus remember Carlos has gotten fantastic reviews. I'm sending out good hair vibes so you will leave with a fantastic cut!! You're just getting trimmed, right?

You are SO right - if I cancel, the next day I will have craptastic hair!

Hi Rudee,

I know what you are saying, I have made my appointment November 5th with Beatrice Basnight in Seattle and I am sooooooo nervous.

I haven't decided whether I need to cut or trim so I posted earlier to see if I could get some feedback.

Good luck with your appointment, can't wait to see the results.
Very Thick dry 3b BSL.
Fine, medium porosity
Right now I am using GVP conditioning balm for cowash and RO,
my hair loves protein.
for styling my base is BRHG I can use it alone but prefer with Curl Keeper. I sulphate poo once a month or so as needed.

Rudee, how did you make it 7 months growing out your bad haircut! That is impressive! I had a bad one 10 weeks ago (yes I'm counting!) and I just scheduled an appointment with Ethan Shaw here in Austin (thanks CurlySuzy!) for 2 weeks from now. I tried to hold out longer but I just can't do it... I fight w/ this haircut EVERY DAY!

At this point I'm willing to sacrafice a little more length (can you hear me crying...) to make this hair work. I just want my long hair back

Well good luck this weekend and keep us posted!

I really wanted to cut it in the end of August, but I corresponded with Carlos via email and he told me to try to stick it out a little longer til the seasons changed and Fall settled in. And you know how you blink your eyes and time has past?

And suddenly, here I am. Nervous but excieted. And a wee bit bummed that the weather for Saturday is going to be chilly and rainy - not the ultimate travel conditions for a 3 hour round trip. Not to mention, who wants to meet a new stylist for the first time with Craptastic looking hair?

Rudee,

I think I you have gorgeous curls and, as already said, Carlos can only make them better. For some of us (namely me) who can never get the curls to look right, I think I'd jump to have even your "craptastic" looking hair. lol Good luck this weekend!

After all that psyching up.... Life sometimes gets in the way.

I had to change my appt; found out today that my Mom has to have some fairly serious surgery soon. Was feeling a bit too rocked and numb to go on a haircut "outing" this weekend, so I resheduled for 2 weeks from Saturday.

to be continued.
